Automatically Post Your Content to Twitter and Facebook using Kentico CMS 7 - Part 1

This post continues my review of some of the new features of Kentico CMS 7. Up next on my list is the new Auto Publishing feature. This feature adds even more social media integration between Kentico CMS and Twitter / Facebook. The icing on the cake is that Auto Publishing comes right out of the box, no custom code is needed. Today I am not only going to review how to use the new Auto Publishing feature of Kentico, but also show you how to add it to any custom document type that you might have.

Kentico CMS 7 RC Released

Today Kentico CMS 7 Release Candidate (RC) was made available to the general public. Again there are a large new set of new features and improvements that come with this newest version. I recommend reading the official Kentico CMS 7 RC blog post, and then diving into the release notes.

I have downloaded the RC, and got it running. It looks very polished at first glance. The first thing that looks very nice is the new e-commerce starter site. This is an option you can now choose right away during the installation process.
